I caught wind from my colleague who had his heart fixed three weeks ago that a close buddy of mine was admitted to the hospital for chest pain.
He was diagnosed with three blocked arteries. This is the guy I have my beers with and a constant eating companion.
With the news in hand, I rang him up to get confirmation. He sounded chirpy and admitted the fact that he will undergo angioplasy to insert a stent in his heart in the weeks to come.
What made it more traumatic is the fact that a buddy of his died in his arms due to congenital heart failure...
